Hootlin is a video game developed in IAT 410 by Kevin Hustler, Jenny Shen, Gavin Stinson, Tia Rambaran and Chris Lu. It's a 2D physics platformer inspired by games like Limbo, Little Big Planet and Bloom. The game reacts to the player's choices and actions to unlock and generate audio that creates the soundtrack to each player's unique experience. Solving puzzles and saving spirits will unlock and produce happier sounds, while killing spirits will make darker sounds. Hootlin was nominated for a Canadian Videogame Award in the category of Best Student Game!
